Gather your materials:
Black Pumps- mine are Prabal Gurung for Target which are on sale now!)
Spray Paint in white (to make the color pop), green (or the color of your choice), and clear gloss (if you can find these in a vinyl spray paint that is ideal as this paint will bond- but will likely crack as time goes on because it’s not flexible like vinyl spray paint is.)
Sand the area that will be painted.
Tape the inside of the shoes.
Spray and even coat of white paint. Start far off the shoe to avoid puddling and ensure an even coat. Let dry 5-10 minutes.
Repeat with the green paint- (or any color of your choice- I like the green that Jimmy Choo chose!)
Repeat with the clear coat- layer several times to get a high gloss finish.
Let dry overnight.

Such a fun idea! Definitely making these this summer!
Wow, they turned out so amazing! Great job!
love this! do you think it would work on a patent-type shoe?
I don’t know if the paint will adhere to patent leather- if it’s faux patent try rubbing it down with acetone instead of sanding and it will remove the shiny finish enough to make the paint stick! let me know if you try it!!!
What a great idea!!! I’ve got to try this :)
Loving this DIY tutorial! The neon to black is amazing.
Amazing DIY! Will try this with other colors as well
